Have You Checked out Notebooking?

  |   Curriculum, Hands on Activities   |   No comment

I know many of you are longingly gazing out the window at the sunshine while trying to crank out the last few school days (or get started again).  You can do it!!  🙂  If you are looking for a way to shake up your routine a bit, consider Notebooking.

 

What is Notebooking, You Ask?

Notebooking is the coined term for what one may refer to as educational journaling or scrapbooking. Essentially, the idea is to create a compilation of what has been learned and experienced in any number of subjects or activities and organize it in a notebook (or binder).

It is generally up to the child to determine what he wants to include in this notebook, although you may want to provide some basic guidelines to help him get started. Written narrations, copywork, timelines, reports, lists, observations, drawings, maps, and photographs are just some of the items that he may include.

The notebook pages he creates for his notebooks will capture the new knowledge he has discovered as well as his own personal reflections of what he has learned. The finished notebook will prove to be a treasure for years to come as the child reviews all that he has learned and admires the elements that he brought to the subjects in making his very own book.

 Notebooking is a very natural and creative way for students to record what they have learned.  It can be used for almost any subject and with any homeschooling philosophy: Charlotte Mason, Classical, the Principle Approach and even Unschooling.  And it works wonderfully with our Unit Program curriculum, particularly. My kids LOVED them — and it was so much easier for them to write on an attractive page with headings than just staring at a blank one!
Studying history chronologically, like we do, is especially easy with a lifetime membership to all of Debra’s current and future notebooking pages sets.  Then you can download notebooking pages for what you’re studying in history, fine arts, science and more.  Help your children have more ownership of what they are studying by letting them keep their own student notebooks.

Tired of the tears (theirs and yours)?

 

You don’t have to tie them to their chairs to get their school work done. (Kidding. You never actually tie them to their chairs. You just feel like that’s what it would take to get them to get their work done.)

Instead of day-dreaming about ropes and chairs, make homeschooling an adventure by reading about swashbuckling heroes, damsels in distress, touch-and-go battles and dangerous escapes.

Immerse your children in the sights and sounds of history through reading excellent books. Bring history, science and fine arts to life by reading our best-of-the-best book suggestions. (A traditional textbook just isn’t going to do this for your kids.)

Like doing things your way?

Put together your own curriculum (history, language arts, science, and fine arts) using our chronological history unit study framework with hundreds of pre-read, best-of-the-best book suggestions and assignment ideas (Unit Program Tools).    

 OR…

Take a deep breath and stop worrying about not covering enough with our open and go Daily Lesson Plans covering history, language arts, science (K-8th) and fine arts.

All done for you and ready to go.

 

Teaching High Schoolers? Study history and literature by making a model, illustrating a scene from a book, or planning and putting on a Renaissance feast!

(We write essays, too, but not all the time).

Customizable to fit YOUR kids.
